32 What do you remember from two years ago? Five months ago? Yesterday? Write or draw about some of those memories. Read the book I Remember. 32 Can You Think It? Can You Dream It?

33 A note to teachers and parents: We really hope this book is simply a springboard to where students go with these writing, drawing, and creative thinking prompts! Here are a few thoughts on how to go further with some of the ideas: Moogie Monster Man - Page 6: Have each student describe what the Moogie Monster Man looks like on a loose piece of paper. Collect, then redistribute, those descriptions. Students now illustrate another classmate s description. Natalie - Pages 16 and 17: Instead of Natalie s dreams, make them the students dreams. Have them use their name in their poem. Couplets - Page 19: Have students work with their classmates and friends. Everyone write a short sentence or line (one half of a couplet) on a piece of paper. Then, trade papers. Now, each person write the second half of the couplet. Write a bunch of them! Choose the favorites and put them together for one class poem! A Three Sentence Story - Page 26: Have everyone write down words on separate small pieces of paper and put them into a hat. Have one person pick out three papers, then make up a story using those three words. I Remember - Page 30: There is an entire book and project to go further with this. You ll find it at The entire book: Throughout the book, you ll find notes on some of the pages referencing where to hear an example of a song or to read the original poem the page is based on. We encourage you to visit our website to learn more about these and other books and music of ours....where the bananas grow! Down by the library... Can You Think It? Can You Dream It? 33
